We are using the PMA agreement www.usefee.tv
We are waiting on other buy-out from the clients so it will be more money for this spot.

We are casting a very cool action/ comic commercial directed by one of the biggest directors in France.
It has a great chase scene & will feel like a mini movie. The twist will be the comedy at the end of this spot. This is going to be a very fun job to work on.

We need actors who truly know how to communicate their emotion.
Our hero is being chased across rooftops of Paris. Think about the chase scene from films like the Bourne legacy.

Male Actor 30-39 years old (White, Latin)
He is in his mid to late thirties
Our hero must look breathless, exhausted because he is being chased across the roof tops of Paris but
nevertheless very friendly at the end of the spot. He needs to be able to go from being very serious & worried as he is running for his life, to being more on the comic side. Character wise  (not look) He goes from straight faced Matt Damon in Bourne Legacy to the playfulness of Hayden Christensen character in the movie Jumper. The actor needs to be agile and fit, in order to be fully believable when running and jumping. An ordinary guy who would go unnoticed if he were not being chased, but as we know this is a commercial & we are looking for that something special in their eyes.
He would mingle perfectly in a crowd of people on the way to work in the morning.
He looks proper but not overly smooth. He’s someone we can easily identify with, as opposed to a hero in an action film.
The actors we select will need to have good stamina as they will be running for long periods.

We are not looking for athletes but nevertheless they have to be Sufficiently athletic to keep up with the filming. Our hero should look like a nice guy so we start wondering why is he being chased

Our references to play the role would be along the lines of the following movie actors

Yvan Attal http://trialx.com/celebrities/2011/07/07/yvan-attal-photos/
Guillaume Canet http://tinyurl.com/76frarx
Gilles Lelouche http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0500976/
